Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid

  • When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them, so they will not be embarrassed.
  • Love can change a person the way a parent can change a baby--awkwardly, and often with a great deal of mess.
  • In love, as in life, one misheard word can be tremendously important. If you tell someone you love them, for instance, you must be absolutely certain that they have replied "I love you back: and not "I love your back" before you continue the conversation.
  • There are many difficult things in this world to hide, but a secret is not one of them.
  • Normally it is not polite to go into somebody's room without knocking, but you can make an exception if the person is dead, or pretending to be dead.
  • If is difficult, when faced with a situation you cannot control, to admit that you can do nothing.
